The Integrated Electronic Office and the Electronic "Whole" Child: Special and Regular Education in the Years 1987 through 1997.
White, George T., Jr.
The paper examines factors involved in applying microcomputer technologies to special education administration. The emergence of the "integrated electronic office" in which student records are stored so as to be available for immediate access is described, as is the complete electronic student record containing all programmatic information on each student throughout their public education. Benefits of such a development are considered as well as such potential problem areas as confidentiality, unauthorized use, and the potential obsolescence of many of the microcomputers in use today. Emphasized in the paper is the need to begin designing integrated educational administrative software that incorporates specific special education information along with other information related to such aspects as attendance, guidance and counseling, federal programs and school psychology.
